So, as all of you know, I was trying to shoot for 365 days of eating at home. I happily made a calendar for the month of January, did some pretty heavy duty shopping to make sure I had ingredients for all of my meals, and got off on a pretty good start.
A lot of the meals were fantastic and blog worthy, however, time just doesn't allow me to sit down very often in front of the computer, and when it does, I don't always have a quiet moment to compose my thoughts.
So, for those who are wondering, did I make it through my calendar of meals, I can honestly say, "NO!" I did however make 14 of the 31 meals. I see that as an accomplishment. I mean, with as busy as our family is, that was a pretty good effort to get everyone to the dinner table.
I have learned that I can't control everything, even making dinner. I really thought telling the world that I am going to do this (365 days of meals) made me accountable for following through. But I guess I am perfect being imperfect. Tonight? We are ordering pizza!
And because I let go and said Chicken a la king can wait, I am sitting down writing.
I am not perfect, but I am honest with myself. Do I fail at things? Most definitely! Imperfections make us unique.
I wouldn't want to be anyone else. Who do you want to be?
